Mudsdale with Sassy nature and perfect IVs would need only 80 EVs in attack for a certain OHKO, and full EVs in HP and 80 in Sp. Def to always survive non-crit Grass Knot, which is the strongest move Xurkitree can throw it's way, exept for Grass Z-move.

That seems like very plausible stat distribution for Mudsdale, since with Stamina ability and no speed, you'll want to put your EVs in bulk and attack.
Also, we're talking about Mudsdale here. Garchomp, for example, will switch in and eat your face with no effort if you don't have Hidden Power Ice, and Dragonite, thanks to it's Multiscale ability, can take even that 4x weakness.

The tournament is singles.

Sun is the first Pkm game since HGSS that I actually can't stop playing. I struggled to get thru gens 3-6. Good job gamefeak. Just fix the damn speed. So slow to get in and out of battles and menus.

The ghost trial had me legit shook.

This introduces a new potential in the Pokémon formula. I like the idea of doing quests or mini games themed around Pokémon types and I love totem Pokémon. I hope in the next games they expand this and we do more fleshed out and interesting trial quests. I'd love the idea of a longer and more interesting ghost scavenger hunt, for example. Or a mission in restoring power to a power plant for the electric trial. Something like that.

I don't know if Battle Tree / Ultra Beasts sidequest is enough to keep me playing after becoming champion....

I am also kinda bummed with how limited the moveset possbilities for most of my team is.

Currently using these, all of them between lvl 60/70:

Decidueye
Mudsdale
Vikavolt
Salazzle
Ribombee

They're still locked until Bank.

Which makes it all the more puzzling why they decided to make half the Megas unavailable.

Getting to level 100 and level 200 gives you two berries you can't get anywhere else.

So I guess just get to 200 once then you don't need to worry about it anymore since you can just grow more of those berries in Poke Pelago.

Just checked Bulbapedia, the Starf and Lansat berries? I can definitely live without those. I won't kill my streaks prematurely for now, but I definitely won't make any real effort to reach a 200 win streak.

Gen 7 walking animations video is out. They have a lot more personality than the other 721. Highlights are Salazzle, Komala, and Buzzwole.

Also just got a Tapu Lele for Trubbish on GTS, didn't think that'd actually work lol. Time to circulate Leles through GTS to see if I can get one with a +sp att nature.

I still have questions about Magearna and the game answer none of them.

So I headed off to the battle tree and I met and battled Dexio, urgh I didn't want to battle him and it was annoying to see that the AI still send mega out last.

Then Dexio gave me a mega stone for Alakazam but I was like "No you keep your mega and Kalos crap to yourself."

I tried to throw away the mega stone but Game Freak removed that option so I had to catch a Pokémon, give it the mega stone and release it.

lmao. I think you hate megas a little too much.

If that's what it takes for me to get a Gym Theme: Alolan Mix, I'll wave goodbye to Trials with a smile on my face.

Preferably, Gyms could be added in the post game of a hypothetical third version. Give Island trials their proper place in the main story, but add traditional gyms in the post game under the pretense that you're testing the layouts and giving the would-be Gym Leaders practice.

Wow, I really like Magearna's.

I didn't expect that it'd be walking tbh. If it wasn't for the fact that Magearna didn't shoehorn a pokeball in its design, I'd like it a looooot more than I do now.

Edit: Starting quest 2 for Razor claw. Have compound eyes butterfree ready for this.

Naive questions from somebody who's never touched a single match of competitive before ever:

- Is there a preliminary singles meta yet? Since that first online competition starts tomorrow.
- If something unbreedable has a nature that suppresses its primary attack type or its speed, is it even worth using in the Tree/online?

1) The Smogon OU and Battle Spot singles metagames have largely stabilised from what I can see. Expect major upheaval in both when Bank opens though.
2) what is the specific Pokémon and its nature? It might just be able to use its weaker offensive Stat depending on its movepool.

I swear that every fucking SOS chain has to have some some sort of absolute ridiculous hassle.

Dittos were a pain in the ass, you have to through the effort of setting up a trubbish with recycle and a switch a leppa berry on it. For Mareanie, you have to keep the Corsola alive, but of course it has recover, reducing the chances that it'd sos, but be careful, you don't want it to be too low either that the Mareanie kills it if it has a chance. Pangoro/Pancham have circle punch, switching me from my freaking Entrainment user to check for the hidden ability. Jangmo-o needs Work up, Iron Defense, AND Screech. I can't even.

Ninetales = FairyTale

Its a fairy, Fairytale is a manga that stars Dragneel the Dragon slayer and what type is a more perfect for slaying dragons?

I was gonna name mine that but I got it from a trade.


Mimikyu I named mines Ito in honor of Junji Ito the horror manga artist who drew incredibly fucked up Pokemon manga panels. He needs to do a new one with Mimikyu!

Someone else mentioned this too and I can totally buy this. Makes a lot of sense.

Actually, knowing that ultra beasts aren't based on humans means there really isn't much clue to explain what the ultra beasts are. Maybe gamefreak really didn't have a specific meaning in mind for them.

The only question that really remains is what is their connection to Solgaleo and Lunala. I still think it's interesting that Solgaleo and Lunala can create wormholes but the ultra beasts can't. Other than that I've got nothing.

After seeing many posts about this, I decided to try this out for myself. I didn't trade for legendaries, but I was fishing for a good Ditto, HA Mareenie, and a HA Vulpix. Surprisingly I got the first 2 (4 IVs each) but not the Vulpix. Eventually got a HA Vulpix (with great Egg moves!) for trading a trash nature Xerkitree but the trades still surprised me nonetheless.
